Gunmen Invade OSOPADEC Agency Office, Beat Up Commissioner

A commissioner on the board of the Ondo State Oil Producing Areas Development Commission (OSOPADEC), Kehinde Akinrotoye, popularly known as Bonsue Aketi, was beaten to pulp on Wednesday evening as hoodlums invaded the agency’s office in Oba-Ile, Akure North Local Council Area of the state.

The incident, which lasted for several hours, sent both staff and students scrambling for safety as gunshots rocked the premises.

The hoodlums, accused of benefiting from the agency despite not being from the mandate area, disrupted the bursary and scholarship programmes while Akinrotoye’s vehicles were also destroyed.

Speaking to Daily Post on the incident, an eyewitness identified as Gbenga, said the beneficiaries of the bursary and scholarship award were already seated when the hoodlums stormed the premises and fired gunshots, thereby halting the programme.

He said it took the efforts of the operatives of the Ondo State Police Command to bring the situation under control.
